The District of Columbia State Athletic Association (DCSAA) is proud to announce that 15 high school seniors have been selected to receive a $1,000 college scholarship. The DCSAA Student-Athlete Academic Scholarship Program is fully funded by United Bank, the Community Bank of the Nation’s Capital.
“Commitment to our communities is a central part of United Bank’s mission,” said United Bankshares, Inc. President Rick Adams. “United Bank is a strong supporter of education, and we are proud to support these talented students on their path towards achieving their goals.”
The scholarship recipients come from nine (9) different high schools in the District, including public schools, public charter schools and independent/private schools. The scholarship awards will be used to help cover the cost of tuition and fees, room and board, and books at an accredited college or university during the 2019-2020 school year.
A reception to honor the scholarship winners will be held on Tuesday, May 28, at the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives, 1201 17th Street, NW.
